Tartu carries out a Car-Free Day 2017 and closes off one or more streets to traffic, and opens it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

Autovabal päeval ei suletud ühtki tänavat, tegevused toimusid jalakäijate tänaval. Samal ajal toimusid ka tudengite sügispäevad, kus oli palju tegevusi. Toimus rattaorienteerumine linnas.
